Launched in 2010 with the goal to improve the livelihood of rural families, “Tiep Suc Nha Nong” , a part of “Vi Ngay Mai Phat Trien” (For Tomorrow’s Development) program by Tuoi Tre newspaper, was initiated by GREENFEED and Tuoi Tre newspaper. The program has been providing interest-free loans and husbandry trainings for more than 2,000 farmer’s households in 16 provinces and cities across the country. The program fund has exceeded VND 50 billion, with 93 percent of households successfully returned the initial loan.
With benevolent purpose, “Tiep Suc Nha Nong” not only provides immediate assistance but also offers sustainable poverty-alleviating solutions, stemmed from GREENFEED’s expertise in comprehensive farming solutions. The initiative has received tremendous advocacy and support from the local communities, authorities as well as partners across the country.
In 2020, “Tiep Suc Nha Nong” will be rolled out in 04 provinces, including Ben Tre, Binh Dinh, Hung Yen, and Hai Duong. With a total relief fund of 7 billion VND, “Tiep Suc Nha Nong” will provide interest-free loan, as well as husbandry coaching to recipients during the 02 years of the funding. Furthermore, students who are children of the program’s beneficiaries will also be considered for scholarships every year should they achieve good academic results.
On the 10th and 11th of November 2020, “Tiep Suc Nha Nong” presented the first batch of loan to farmers living in An Hiep and An Binh Tay communes, Ba Tri district, Ben Tre province. At the ceremony, the program also awarded valuable scholarships to encourage the learning spirit of 40 academically successful students of Vinh Long Province, who are the children of the beneficiaries of “Tiep Suc Nha Nong 2018 – 2020”.
Ms. Tran Thi Ha (An Binh Tay commune, Ba Tri district, Ben Tre province) shared: “In our family, there are only me and my son Khoa, who is currently studying Automotives Major at Dong Khoi Vocational College. I do all kinds of job, from early morning to late night in the hope that he can continue his study and grow into a decent man. Recently, I started livestock farming, it’s a small business but we have to make ends meet. This time, thanks to the support from GREENFEED, I think we could expend the business and have a better future for us.”.
As social responsibility is one of the company’s business cores, GREENFEED is also active in many other initiatives to support local communities. Recently, GREENFEED has joined hands with its partners and customers across the whole food chain to donate more than VND 7 billion for people in the Central region who were affected by the recent natural disasters. With this fund, GREENFEED, together with its customers and partners, pledges to support essential needs and help improve the post-disaster livelihood through activities such as providing healthy food (via G Kitchen products), building flood-proof houses, supporting the livelihoods by providing livestock breeds and feed for farmers, as well as stationaries for children.
